Sylvan Lake urgent care centre closing early on Friday

Sylvan Lake Advanced Ambulatory Care Service closing doors at 8 p.m. instead of 10 p.m.

Sylvan Lake Advanced Ambulatory Care Service (SLAACS) will close two hours early at 8 p.m. Friday because of staff shortages.

The service will reopen at 7:30 a.m. Saturday and run until 10 p.m.

This temporary closure is necessary as the service cannot operate without an appropriate number of nursing staff onsite. Options to secure alternative nursing supports have been exhausted.

Patients arriving at the Sylvan Lake Community Health Centre to receive care at the Advanced Ambulatory Care Service during the temporary closure will be redirected to other available care options as appropriate to their needs. These options include returning when the service resumes, booking an appointment with a family doctor, or calling Health Link at 811 for medical information and advice.

Patients can also access medical care for urgent health concerns from facilities in nearby communities, including Innisfail, Rocky Mountain House and Red Deer.
